Yes, Jesus did say, "though shalt drill for the earth's bounty to power thy automobiles".

Twiggy can bang on abut this all he likes, but there's a growing backlash against the ESG nonsense he pushes. Lucky for him he's plenty of money (that he earned from burning fossil fuels to extract all that iron ore) to fall back on. Meanwhile the so-called green revolution is pushing the cost of living sky high for normal folk.

Meanwhile the so-called green revolution is pushing the cost of living sky high for normal folk.

The insistence to terminate our beautiful planet, while it is so easy to move from carbon to solar and to nuclear energy, and from primitive petroleum wagons to modern electric cars, is pushing away the very possibility of existing and living for normal (and abnormal) folk.

While solar and wind energy can be used for power generation, maritime shipping, aviation and road haulage will still require fuel, she said.

Wind energy is limited and unstable. However, solar energy arrives in enormous plenty. Nuclear energy should be considered as a clean energy as well. All land transportation, including haulage, can be entirely based on electricity. Much of container and bulk shipping can be moved to railway transportation. As to aviation, there are new advancements that reduce fuel consumption greatly – see about the Celera aircraft, for example.
